My Buddy and i took the V.W. camper up to Rich Stadium and did we get hassled.
We got pulled over for D.W.A.H
(driving while a hippie)
The State troopers wanted to search everything in the camper and I mean everything.
All these heads driving by us as every single thing I owned was up for government inspection.
The strangest part of the affair was they wanted the Steal Your Face sticker photo-copy in the window. Send it to the lab. Also decided to seize my dried fruit from the natural Food Store which trust me was not cheap. I almost lost my cool but good thing I didn't because they found my friends bowl, (not the cereal eating one) and we had to do some fast talking to get out of that one.
Oh yeah, some of my paperwork was not in order for the State of N.Y. so they made my friend drive which was bizarre and probably dangerous because he had no clue how to drive stick. He learned quick and we finally got to the show but trust me we were somewhat beaten down by that time.
I guess looking back we were blessed to not have to spend the 4th of July in jail.
The show? Do not remember much besides the TERRAPIN STATION and finally after a few years on tour being totally in the moment for the U.S. Blues encore.

Subject: this is the show
Subject: loved this tour...
Subject: 1990 was Better
It certainly seemed like the '86 show was more than 3 years prior to this one at the time. I would guess much of that had to do with Jerry's improved health. Still - having played at Silver Stadium in Rochester in '87 and '88 - Rich Stadium seemed like an enormous concrete venue.
But what can you do? Smile smile smile
Perhaps they had video rigs up and decided to release this, I am not sure.
Nice suprise for a 1st set LLR. The playing is solid. Second set is good but not as good (again in my opin) as the boys would crank out the following July.
3 stars and by now most people have the dvd or the album as a fellow commentator noted below.
Subject: Rich Stadium = Great Vibes
Such a majestic performance, really brings me back to hear this again!
Subject: Great Show
Subject: Jerry's Voice
Subject: Great sound
Subject: home town delight!
playin->crazy fingers(wow!!hows that for a set opener) ...the playin was just up to the jam where they cut it off and went into crazy fingers
and i waited the entire show for them to pop back
into the reprise but alas it was not to be.
Did they forget about it??? I have no idea.
but you can imagine my delight when 2 days later in my home town of Buffalo when the better part of the way through the second set the come creeping out of ship of fools to finish it off with the playin reprise!!!! yeah!Now thats a band! I dont know who else noticed it at the time
or later for that matter!? When i met back up w/friend after the show who had been with me in foxborough (who know there Dead) they seem to think i was off my rocker. but off course the tapes later upheld my version of this unusual occurence. I dont know if this has happend before
or after but i knew it happend that night.
being there i thought fox borrough was the better of the 2 shows but the tapes seem to indicate otherwise.
Subject: what a way to open a show
Subject: 5 stars is really pushing it
Jerry's voice is weary at this point, the tempo is down for a couple of tunes, and the whole set just feels like a mediocore late 80's show.
Levels aren't anything to write home about either.
I'm giving it 3 because while it's solid, it pales in comparison to a number of shows around here.
Subject: Great Show
Subject: bestest buffalo?
Subject: Better AUD
I had fun at this show and was pleasantly surprised with its power. I thought Rich Stadium in 1986 was rather weak but never really had high expectations for the GD"s high profile/stadium shows for that matter. Nonetheless I remember leaving with a good feeling from this one.
